Goodbye and good luck to our wonderful Year 6! You have been an amazing class and we will all miss you. Thank you to Year 6 (and parents) for the lovely bird bath. We are sure many generations of children will enjoy watching the birds who will use it in forest school.

Here is a thank you video from Year 6


Following  government guidance for September opening last week there will be some changes to class groupings. This is to keep each group as equal as possible and reduce the risk from COVID as much as we possibly can. Procedures will include staggered starts and ends for classes and as little mixing between classes as will be possible. Full procedures will be published tomorrow and a Risk Assessment will be in place by the time we break up for the Summer but as reports are coming out this week, these are the class groups for September:

Ladybirds: 10 Year 1s and 14 Reception = 24, with Mrs Watkins         Squirrels: 8 Year 1s and 16 Year 2s = 24 with Mrs Mason and Mrs Gilmour                                                                                                     Butterflies: 15 Year 3s with Mr Rushton                                            Frogs: 12 Year 4s and 12 Year 5s = 24 with Mrs Belfield and Mrs Lines                                                                                                          Owls: 8 Year  5s and 16 Year 6s = 24 with Miss Davies-Griffith

Twins and siblings who are near in age are being placed together where possible. The class groupings will be fluid and the teachers will assess whether any movement is necessary as COVID restrictions ease, which means we may see changes over the year. Further details will be out tomorrow. Keep an eye on the letters page and this home page.


As a school we welcome sharing this important and exciting period of your child’s life with you. We believe in providing inspirational starting points for learning and developing every child’s potential whatever talents and interests they may have.

At Hinstock we provide a stimulating, broad and balanced curriculum, to prepare for your child’s future by developing skills and promoting enthusiasm to pursue learning throughout their lives.  We acknowledge the importance of developing a caring and stimulating environment, where your child’s self-esteem grows enabling them to take risks and learn confidently through their achievements and mistakes.  We are an inclusive school that builds independence, responsibility, resilience, kindness and resourcefulness in preparation for life in today’s society.

Our aim is to enable every child to fulfil their potential and have opportunities to develop their own skills and interests. We encourage every child to be the best they can be and do the best they can do.

The best way to appreciate our aims and values is to come and visit us.  We want your association with the school to be a long and happy one.  Working closely with parents and carers is integral for the success of every child.  With your help we hope your child will contribute to the life of the school and take part in and enjoy the many opportunities we provide.

Please read this poem by a former pupil in year 6 - it sums up best what we want for our pupils at Hinstock School.  Use Your Potential....

Recently the school received a lovely email which shows how proud we should be of our children, they are a credit to the school and  to you as parents: 'May I take this opportunity to say that in thirty years of driving countless thousands of children for hundreds of schools over the UK, Hinstock Primary School stands above all others in terms of respect for others, personal behaviour and friendliness to all. For this I thank the children and the culture nurtured by the staff. Kind regards - Damon Crute,  DC Coaches Ltd.'
